State of Decay resubmitted to AU Classification Board

Wednesday, 3rd July 2013 02:00 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A new version of State of Decay has been offered to Australia’s content watchdogs, and it’s packed with healthy vitamins.

Undead Labs confirmed in a Facebook post that it has submitted a special, edited version of the zombie survival game for the Australian Classification Board’s consideration.

“Australians, I can officially tell you that the special edition of the game is now in the hands of your review board. Stimulants out. ‘Supplements’ in,” the developer said.

“Who could possibly not like vitamins? They’re good for you. Anyway, we’re feeling pretty optimistic about our chances.”

State of Decay did not make it into Australia’s R18+ ratings category because content guidelines frown on the incentivised depiction of drug use.

State of Decay is currently exclusive to Xbox 360, but a PC version is inbound.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    It’s pretty pathetic how as an Australian adult who enjoys video games, I have to be told what I can and can’t enjoy because some old people make the decisions.

    Happy to hear this – as many folks need to get their hands on this game as possible.

    It’s taking the whole point of the different kinds of medication out of the picture and deciding which one to take with you and which ones to leave at the safe house. Ridiculous.
